Be Cool

19th June, 2012

Though yesterday was surprisingly lovely, the past few weeks have been nothing but muggy and yucky in New York. For days, nothing in my closet felt bearable against the humidity and heat. So, on a whim, I went into American Apparel and bought 10 of these boxy cotton shirts, in an array of colors. So crisp! So cool! I’m considering making a uniform of them for a bit, what do you think?|WEARING| Super sunniesRachel Comey hat (recently featured HERE and HERE), American Apparel shirt, Pour la Victoire bag, L.A.M.B. pants (similar styles on sale HERE and HERE), Jean Michel Cazabat shoes

    I fully understand. I live on a Mediterranean island in the sun and am used to humid warm sticky weather. The shirts seem a good idea but what I find most soothing is loose flowing dresses which are mostly sleeveless. The problem is that most indoor places have air-conditioning which chills the life out of you and freezes you to death, drying the sweat on your back and causing you muscle pains. So I have learnt that it’s convenient to carry around in my bag any one of my assorted selection of large & lightweight shawls, scarves or wraps which I chuck over my shoulder to avoid the chill and once back out in the sun – I just pull it off. Love the hat too!

    Fantastic idea – The crisp material is breathable and airy enough that it doesn’t stick to your skin! AND it looks adorable with those pants, hat, and bag!

    I need to check out pour la victoire bags!  Love the one you are carrying and 10 of the same shirts?  Yes uniform worthy absolutely!

  • ttea

    I think if you dress it up and use the right accessories it could really work as an everyday outfit.

    I recently did a post on NYC fashion, and seeing as you’re a New Yorker I was hoping you could check it out and tell me your thoughts on New York City style.

    super cute!  i’ve been in texas the past couple of weeks, talk about heat wave!  cut offs and tank tops are about all i’ve been able to handle but you’ve inspired me to up the ante a little!


  • Jnbarger

    20 shirts? Really? That seems mighty wasteful and greedy to me.
